Samsung's Almost Done Making Android 4.1 for Galaxy S III

With over 10 million devices sold within two months of its release, Samsung's Galaxy S III is one of the most if not the most popular android devices on the market.

With the Android 4.1 source out in the open, it only makes sense that Samsung is working hard to quickly bring it to its flagship device.

The company's mobile blog indicates internal testing of the new firmware has already been completed and that a public-ready version is in the process of being completed. After its completion, all that's left is final approval from Google before the update is sent out to all Galaxy S III devices.

In addition to the port for the Galaxy S III, Samsung is also making progress on the Android 4.1 update for the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note.

Despite being in the middle of a very public billion dollar trial, it seems like Samsung is still as focused as ever. It's only a matter of time before all of Samsung's hot selling devices get a little taste of Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Tune into Sammobile for more updates from Samsung.

    Only to be released a year later! That's how the Froyo update went for my Captivate. If you don't want to wait, cruse over to XDA and get it now.

    The software for the galaxy s2 was available almost immediately. The captivate was an AT&T specific model with modifications made at AT&T's request. This took longer to validate and was on AT&T to do, not Google/Samsung.

    Anyone with a I-9100 international version would have had the update notification within a week or two. I expect the same to happen with the Galaxy S 3. Since the carriers don't seem to be making modifications, everyone should get their update at the same time.

    Hope they are better at deploying it for use in the real world and not just talking about it for a year. HTC's still trying to get ICS out. My poor Thunderbolt!
